So my hunting handguns include a 357 mag, 30/30AI, 445 super mag and a 375 Win. Here in stupid Calif. I have to use non lead bullets. So far, I have found good bullets for everything except the 375 Win. Any suggestions?

LeHigh Defense offers there controlled fracturing in .375 in 175gr and 185gr. No personal experience but I?ve read good things.

Also, 250 gr. Lehigh fracturing. Performing better than Xs in deer, bear.

Of the non-lead bullets offered by Midway, most are Barnes. My muzzle velocity is barely above the speed needed to expand. They are unfortunately out. Seems the main opinion is that I should try the Lehigh fracturing bullets. I'll try some and do some expansion tests at my velocity and see how they do. Thanks for the help.

Lehigh is probably your best bet.
